Good Morning, Sunshine: Sandra Magsamen
I've had this book out on the table to review, and I found the art alone just so cheerful. How can you not be encouraged by the title, Good Morning, Sunshine?
This lift-the-flap, in celebration of a good breakfast, will get your totz hungering for eggs and toast and another read, for certain. One can flip the egg, squeeze the juice, and remove the toast to put "a big smile in your belly." The last page opens vertically into a large quadruple spread. You are going to have to smile back at the eggs and toast smiling at you.
Sandra Magsamen's text and art are full of life and energy through simplicity and a beautiful palette. Gold foil on the cover will catch your eye when you set out to find this work.
Joan and I wish you and your totz a good morning, sunshine!
Good Morning, Sunshine
